About Power Mentoring Sessions

Power Mentoring Sessions are space-limited discussions hosted by OISE and CIRTL at Cornell that provide invited graduate students and postdocs with the opportunity to engage in candid, closed door conversations on various topics with faculty from backgrounds historically underrepresented and minoritized within the academy.

You are invited to join the Graduate School Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement and the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) at Cornell for a Power Mentoring Lunch with Dr. Anthony A. Jack, Junior Fellow, Harvard Society of Fellows, Assistant Professor of Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education.


About Professor Anthony Jack

Anthony Abraham Jack (Ph.D., Harvard University, 2016) is a junior fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows and assistant professor of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. He holds the Shutzer Assistant Professorship at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.

His research documents the overlooked diversity among lower-income undergraduates: the Doubly Disadvantaged—those who enter college from local, typically distressed public high schools—and Privileged Poor—those who do so from boarding, day, and preparatory high schools. His scholarship appears in the Du Bois Review, Sociological Forum, and Sociology of Education and has earned awards from the American Sociological Association, Eastern Sociological Society, and the Society for the Study of Social Problems. Jack has held fellowships from the Ford Foundation and the National Science Foundation and was a 2015 National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation Dissertation Fellow. The National Center for Institutional Diversity at the University of Michigan named him a 2016 Emerging Diversity Scholar. 

The New York Times, Boston Globe, The Atlantic, The Huffington Post, The National Review, The Washington Post, The Hechinger ReportAmerican RadioWorks, and NPR have featured his research and writing as well as biographical profiles of his experiences as a first-generation college student. His first book, The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Poor Students, was released February 2019 with Harvard University Press.  Click here to view his TEDxCambridge talk, “ On Diversity: Access Ain’t Inclusion.”
